Aurangabad, India, August 29, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Hazari Nursing Home announces the installation of the IQ577 Pattern Yellow Micropluse laser from Iridex, the world leaders and pioneers in Eye lasers for retina. This is the first laser of its kind in the whole region of Marathwada including its 8 districts. This is a big boon for patients with diabetes and also of glaucoma from the region.
The 577 Yellow laser is ideal for treating the retina in severe cases of diabetic retinopathy. Being a Pattern laser, the laser treatment itself is very fast and causes no discomfort or pain to the patient.
Micropulse therapy is a revolutionary therapy that is now available to their patients. Traditional laser burns the retina and causes permanent damage to it. That is the mechanism of action of traditional laser. it prevents severe vision loss by destroying some part of the retina that is of less use to the patient. Micropulse is revolutionary because it treats the retina without causing damage and yet is extremely effective in controlling the diabetic retinopathy. The other advantages of micropulse are that it is completely painless and is repeatable unlike traditional laser. The other most important advantage of the Yellow Micropulse laser is that we can do away with or drastically reduce the number of expensive Anti VegF injections that need to be given to reduce the retina swelling. This not only saves precious resources for the patient but also reduces the potential risks of taking repeated injections in the eye.
We have been at the forefront of glaucoma management in the region for more than a decade and have always brought in the best that technology can offer for their glaucoma patient. The IQ577 Micropulse makes available a new treatment for suitable glaucoma patients that was hitherto unavailable in the region. Micropulse Laser Trabeculoplasty (MLT) is a new, innovative treatment that can now be done for patients with Primary Open Angle Glaucoma. This can help in controlling eye pressure in new glaucoma patients without medication. In glaucoma patients who have been previously on multiple medications, there is possibility of reducing the number and dosage of medicines. The other advantage is the that it does not cause damage to the eye and is repeatable.
Hazari Nursing Home has always been in the forefront of introducing safe new technology in the region. Amongst their firsts in Marathwada region are Humphrey Visual Field testing machine, the GDX VCC, IOLMASTER, Cirrus Photo 800, Infiniti Phaco machine, the Centurion Phaco Machine and now the IQ 577 from Iridex.
The facilities available at Hazari Nursing Home include complete cataract management, glaucoma management, Lasik and other refractive surgeries and Treatment of retinal problems due to Diabetes, Hypertension, and Age related Macular Degeneration. The hospital is on the panel of most of the Insurance companies and offers cashless treatments for insured patients.
